(laughter). >> jon: if i get let's say four hours of sleep i can't remember when think birthday is but this guy-- >> i know! >> jon: i alwa

. >> rose: what came closer who said-- >> well, one of which was your friend and mine christopher hitchens. >> rose: came forward and said "there is a prciple here." >> yes, i had known christopher a little but he wasn't one of my close inner circle but he became it. as answer lit choice. he stepped closer and closer to me and that's somebody you want on your side in a fight. i was lucky to have him. >> rose: at least representing you rhetorically. (laughs) >> yes. >> rose: what would you do differently? >> i don't know. i often ask myself that. one thing i think is-- well, i would try not to make that appeasement mistake. i sometimes think i was wrong to accept the please instruction to not go home. i think the only reason i did was because initially we all thought this would be of very short duration. the police thought it, too. it can't be allowed to stand that the head of state of one country orders the murder of a citizen of another country who's living in the country he's a citizen of and has committed no crime. it's outrages you. so basically i was told let's just lie low for a few
